Report for Marchwood Parish Council – December 2016

It's been a busy time for me on the run up to Christmas and the New Year, so I will provide just a short report, detailing my involvement in village related activities and am happy to try and answer any questions.

Land North of Loperwood Lane, Calmore

I have just returned from a Planning Meeting at New Forest District Council in which I proposed refusal of an application to build 80 new dwellings on the green field, north of Loperwood Lane.

Ups and Downs of Facebook

These days, I am probably better known through Facebook than I am in "real life". It's humbling to know that about two and a half thousand people think that the thoughts and activities of a local Councillor are interesting enough to follow regularly.

The Yorkshire Conference

At the risk of opening myself up to criticism, one of the benefits of getting elected and then appointed onto the New Forest National Park Authority is that I do get an opportunity to attend one or two conferences.
